Google's Halloween doodle turns you into a witch

This year's Google doodle for Halloween lets people mix ingredients to play various mini games. Just don't look for an ending.

Google Doodle

It's already Halloween in some countries, which means there's a new Google doodle.

Already live in Australia (and soon elsewhere) is a new doodle for the holiday, which lets users become a witch and create a witch's brew.

Users can combine various ingredients to play mini games, from whack-a-mole with the undead, to a shell game where your goal is to find a mummy in a coffin. There are several others, which can be found with experimentation.

That's about all you can do with this one, so if you're looking for an ending, it's a bit of a cliff-hanger.

Last year's Halloween doodle was similarly interactive, with a row of houses that contained various interactive elements.

Adorning Google's home page with decorative, and increasingly interactive alternatives to its normal multi-color logo has been a tradition for the company since 1998. There's a team of people at Google who create the doodles , though the company occasionally allows outsiders to make them too.
